Flowers and Some Baskets

Good morning and welcome to my new followers! 

This week I've finished one hexagon flower.
I've also finished a few Trick or Treat baskets from When the Cold Wind Blows by Barb Adams and Alma Allen. 


I've been a bit under the weather the past week, but I ventured outside yesterday when I heard the Blue Angels practicing for the Mount Comfort Air Show not far from here.  We live just close enough that we can see them as they make their turn around to head back to the airport and hear the roar of the F-16 engines. 

While I was outside, I looked out back and noticed that my peony bushes were in bloom.  I love the color of these.

You can go over to Karen's blog and take a look at all of the hexagon flowers that were made this week. 

I hope you are all finding some time to stitch this weekend! 


Thanks for stopping by!

Your flowers and baskets are great. I have made one basket so far and you are making want to prep a few more. I noticed that you incorporated the basket handle into the basket instead of separately. BRILLIANT!

Your peonies are lovely as is your Hexagon flower.

Great baskets. I bought that book in January in the hopes of making a few of them myself.... Time will tell.

Beautiful flower LuAnn, it matches the peonies. And, sweet baskets, I have yet to start mine.

very pretty hexie! thanks for sharing the pic of your peonies, too, they remind me of my dad, he was very proud of his peonies. His were white with just a touch of pink.

Your flowers are just gorgeous! What a stunning color! What size are your basket blocks? They look tiny and sweet in the photo. Hope you are recovered from your nasty virus, you poor thing, you really got hit hard with this one!

Don't you just love those dark peonies? I could have a whole yard full of peonies. Any every other flower for that matter.

Your little baskets are so cute.

the flowers are beautiful and the little baskets are so cute. Looks like lots of work but well worth the extra effort.
